Lately the only way I want to eat veggies is roasted. I am on a major roasting kick. Typically I roast veggies in a simple combination of olive oil, salt, pepper, and perhaps some fresh herbs or garlic. Lately however I have been trying to move out of my comfort zone and experiment with some other oils and flavors. Since I love the nutty flavor of sesame oil, I imagined it would pair well with the sweetness of carrots and a touch of soy for salt. The results were delicious, especially with the ginger and garlic. Consider these for your next Asian inspired dish or roast up a big batch to add to salads during the week.

This is only my second week using the meal plans and this is the second recipe that in the instructions makes reference to items not in the ingredients list. It says to add garlic and ginger in the instructions but not in the ingredients. What kind and how much? Since I am in the middle of making dinner, I guess I'll just have to guess.
